The building is beautiful, historical and full of character. The owner/ manager/ staff could not do any more to make your life easy, cooking meals for you whenever you want, helping with restaurant reservations, its like having your own personal concierge 24/7 In terms of the location it is a bit of a walk into the centre of town but...

First off, this place is gorgeous. The rooms were splendidly furnished and filled with lovely details, boasting huge ceilings and doors apparently made for some mythical breed of giants. Staff, during our time comprised of one, was very helpful and polite. Location is good but not perfect. Main areas of attraction are within walking distance, but anything more than 10... More

The hotel and grounds are beautiful. The rooms are large and very clean with high ceilings, air conditioning, multiple ceiling fans, and gigantic, romantic, wood framed beds. The floors have beautiful antique tile designs. The staff could not be more accomodating and friendly. We felt like family.

Okay, when booking this reservation, we so wanted to believe all the raves we read here on Trip Advisor that we just breezed over the not-so-good reviews. BIG MISTAKE! We really felt mislead by positive reviews and I really even suspect many of them are fake positives by some advertising agency or friends of the management. First of all, my... More
